Not that there was a 'normal' night when Bruce was in town, but this one was a doozy. There was an opening band, which was unusual, and it was my birthday. There was no soundcheck, so the mix is tighter after the first two songs.

The Donkey is a rare beauty - just Jimmy, Oteil and Jeff. Twenty minutes of Aural Awesome.

Subject: Excellent jam
This was great to listen to. Very clean sounding recording. Bruce is at his best with ad lib trash talk in between lines. Herring is on fire. Sipe holds it down. Oteil and Mundy do their thing.

Any ARU fan will enjoy this.

Great example of earlier ARU.
The highlights for me were the Aberdeen and Salty Dog>Yonders Wall: sick, thick and dirty.
The Jam/Time is Free/blues is really neat. It begins with a very, very loose Time is Free jam that segues into Time. Bruce eventually introduces the Blues instrumental as a song writtem by a friend of his.
Peace and much groove.
